It really would depend on the situation.

I would try to help a loved one as long as the law was not a real bad one I would have to break though then again for my remaining son, I might just break any law to help him!

I would stop short of murder though!

Now this is a very interesting question!! I think if the truth be known,we would all be prepared to break some form of law to help a beloved person who means the world to us! I do not think I could ever commit murder though!In fact I am 99% sure of this!! But silly little 'laws'.are a whole other matter,and I would most likely do so for my son,if the reason was important enough.
Depends on the law, I wouldn't kill someone or anything, but I would say help them evade their taxes, or break in somewhere if needed. Admittedly though, there would have to be a real good reason to break in to some place before I would help.
I don't think I'd know until I was in that situation.
No, definitely not, no matter the circumstance.

Yep, jonaj, really.

I know I just could NOT live with my conscience.

Breaking the law, & rules, be they be of Home, School, Community, Road, Company, Defence Force, is just total anathema to me.

That's the way I was raised, by my Parents, my Schooling, & the way I live my life.
It has been the best, & has given me much enjoyment, comfort, & success in life.

In my hand I have an axe. On the ground is a cherry tree. It was me, I cannot tell a lie. I would be beyond useless . . .I can't even walk around a store without folding my arms so that I I am clearly not shoplifting. LOL. Sorry, loved ones, if you break the law, you are toast.

There are different levels of law breaking. I wouldn't ever commit a serious crime though. How would committing a crime save loved one?
first one springs to mind is lying under oath.....taking blame for something someone else did.....
by Finy
No way. Breaking the law is never a solution. Laws were put in place to protect us, and breaking them would put me and the loved one in danger.

It depends on the level of the problem really, small things like taking demerit points for your son or something may be okay....
No, I wouldn't break any real Laws of the land.

I wanted to vote for you, Finy and Damien, but I had to go with Sandy in the end. I don't know what I would do until push came to shove.
by Vee
I have been in this position.

It is one of the hardest things to deal with.

Esp if it is someone much much loved.
I really couldn't say until I was in that situation. It depends on the law too. I wouldn't do anything that is against my principles and ethics. There are certain things that I would NEVER do. Certain situations can make good, law abiding people break the law, such as acquiring marijuana for their child. The law has changed in this instance, and you can legally get it, with a doctors prescription.
